Equality & Diversity

"The University's diversity plays a key role in sustaining its academic excellence"

Vice Chancellor, Sir Leszek Borysiewicz

Welcome to Equality & Diversity

The University of Cambridge is committed in its pursuit of academic excellence to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach to equality, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity.


The University has adopted an Equality & Diversity Strategy 2016-2021 and Action Plan.

The University’s commitments to progressing equality are captured in the Equality & Diversity Strategy 2016-2021, our Equal Opportunities Policy and our Combined Equality Scheme.

In line with requirements under the Equality Act 2010, the University has published the Equality & Diversity Information Report 2015/16. [previous reports can be found here]. This incorporates data on staff and student matters at the University of Cambridge and provides an overview of the University's progress against the Equality Objectives outlined below.
